We value your privacy

Your privacy is important.  We need to keep information about our volunteers but we are very clear about what we need to know about you and what we do with this information.  You can find further information by looking at our Privacy Policy, but in short:

  • We need to know about your health and medication.  This is used to determine eligibility for studies.

  • We also would like to know other things, such as your skin type, so we can match you to appropriate studies.

  • Your personal data is never shared with any third party.

  • Our customers (the product manufacturers) do not get to know anything identifiable about you.  You are just a number.

  • We sometimes take photographs for some studies, but we will ask you in advance if this is necessary.

Use of our website

When you register as a volunteer with us, you will be asked to provide basic contact and personal information.  We will use this information to create a volunteer profile for you on our own internal database, used for selecting our study volunteers.  We will also create a web account for you which will provide you full access to this website, allowing you to see all posts and to like and comment on them.  You may receive notifications about new posts or study recruitment emails from us, although you can unsubscribe from these at any time.

If you would like to register as a volunteer with us but do not wish to have an account for our website, please contact us.

Data protection

We are fully compliant with the new EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).  We have implemented processes and procedures to safeguard your data and to provide you access to it to see what we hold about you, should you wish to.  If you wish to discuss this further with us, please contact us using the details below:
